A model for the correlation between radon anomalies and magnitude of earthquakes



A model for the correlation between radon anomalies and magnitude of earthquakes



Nuclear Tracks and Radiation Measurements 15(1-4): 689-692



Study attempted to establish a relationship between amplitude of radon anomalies and earthquake parameters. Model tested on available earthquake data. Radon anomalies were found to depend on earthquake magnitude. Preliminary results confirm model is useful for earthquake prediction.--Modified journal abstract.
